The Plan

1) Planning items

  • Are there any field trip opportunities?
  • Figure-out what books to order
  • Figure-out what are the likely conference opportunities?

2) Things to learn

  • Is there a somewhat canonical process or technique that one can reliably apply to go from readings -> data -> information -> visualization?

3) Things to read

4) Things to do during the class

5) Questions

  • Which parts of statistics do people need to know?
